VOTE NOW: Green Dot Submits Three Panels for 2018 SXSWedu Conference & Festival


For its third year in a row, Green Dot Public Schools submitted proposals for our educators, leadership team and staff to lead panel discussions at SXSWedu’s annual conference in Austin, TX. Once a year, educators from around the country come together to connect, share best practices and learn how to best serve students. Earlier this year, Green Dot led two panels at SXSWedu. Teachers were lined up out the door to learn about Green Dot’s comprehensive approach to professional development, and Green Dot CEO Marco Petruzzi partnered with Scott Sargrad from the Center for American Progress to discuss ESSA implementation. Green Dot’s presence at SXSWedu 2017 was a smash hit — and we’re expecting next year won’t be any different.

Green Dot has submitted three panels for the SXSWedu 2018 conference and we need your help to make sure our panels get chosen! Create an account with SXSW and vote for Green Dot’s panels. Your votes can help ensure that our panels are chosen and that Green Dot will once again have a strong presence at the most prominent education conference in the country.
